I have a 4 year old boy who has just started school and I'm feeling so lonely! This has been getting worse for some time now.
My partner works a lot and I work full time, but I'm a self employed housekeeper so I don't have any co-workers.
I feel like my life is spent working to never have anything to show for it! I feel like I don't spend quality time with my son as by the time I pick him up from school, I come home to do the housework, then start dinner and then it's his bedtime!
I have no friends and I feel like I have no way of making any friends....doesn't it get so much harder the older you get?! I'm a confident person but I feel like there's something about me as to why I have no friends :(
Sorry for the rant I just wondered if anyone else feels there in the same boat as me....

Hi Ashleigh1911 - welcome to MadeForMums!
Sorry to hear you're feeling so down in the dumps - if it any help, loads of us feel the same way at various points in our parenting life, and particularly, I think, when our kids first go off to school.
Hope some other people will come along in a moment to have a chat. You're not alone, you know, even though it may feel like it right now!

You are not alone in this xx
I think that we focus on our families and jobs so hard, that sometimes we forget about ourselves.
Warm hugs your way and let's find ideas and solutions together 😀xx
